Hai to Gensou no Grimgar (or Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash) has grown since its inception back in the winter of 2016. Although it had a slow rise to popularity, the stunning visuals and the well-developed story has solidified its position as an all-time favorite. The fans have been desperately waiting for a 2nd season for a long time now. So, if you are a die-hard fan of this series and are clamoring to know about Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash season 2. Then you are in the right place.
We will get into all the information you need about Hai to Gensou no Grimgar Season 2, but before we do that; let’s see what makes this series stand out so much.
Hai to Gensou No Grimgar portrays a realistic view of what it would be like if someone got transported into another world. With its slow pace and a story that focuses heavily on character development, Grimgar seems to portray actual real human emotions. You can relate to the characters and the difficulties they go through. And that’s not it! You would feel that if you were in their situation, you would do the same thing.
Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash characters are unique in that manner. The characters aren’t motivated by any self-justified righteousness. They are there to survive and they know it. Death constantly looms over the characters and any small mistake could cost them their life.
This portrayal of unpredictability kept me on edge throughout the show. And I would recommend this anime to anyone. Now, this is a well-rounded and satisfying anime to watch, that leaves you wanting more. Now let’s get into the plot for this anime.
Hai to Gensou no Grimgar Plot:
The story of Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash revolves around Haruhiro. He and some other people suddenly found themselves in another world.

With survival on their mind, everyone forms a party. Haruhiro also joins a party and takes his first steps in the world of Grimgar. It’s the story of an adventure born from ashes.
Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash Anime:
Grimgar Ashes and Illusions is an artistic Marble. The anime is known for its unique art style and brilliant execution. The most well-noted traits about the anime are its water-color backgrounds.
These backgrounds are just stunning and add to the feel of fantasy. Grimgar’s Anime is slow-paced, but the enticing art of the anime makes the slow pace feel pleasant. A-1 pictures did an awesome job with this one, which has produced some of the best anime series such as Ao no Exorcist, Nanatsu no Taizai, and Yakusoku no Neverland.
The anime covers barely the first 2 volumes of the light novel. Though the anime deviated from the source in its second half and somewhat changed the events in its ending to better fit itself, the light Novel remains relevant to the anime. The deviations were minute and were done to better suit the anime. And I think the anime turned out better this way. Again A-1 went all out for this one. Gems like this are hard to come by.
Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash Manga:
Hai to Gensou no Grimgar is one of those rare series where the manga is not as good as the anime. The manga covers barely enough of the story. The art for the manga is not as good as the art in the anime.

Although the anime deviated from the light novels in its ending as previously mentioned, the light novels take you on a little different route and it has even more heartfelt scenes and further expands on the story. The light novels are ongoing and mostly have been translated into English. They are a must-read if you love the anime and want to know more.
